IEEE EDS Seattle Chapter 2013 Mini-Colloquium

The IEEE Electron Devices Society (EDS) and the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington co-sponsored a successful Mini-Colloquium for the EDS Seattle Chapter on May 14, 2013. This event was held in the HUB (Husky Union Building) on the University of Washington Seattle campus. There were 40 attendees in addition to the speakers and organizers and student volunteers, making a total of 54 participants. In addition to the talks, there were two hosted break sessions and a luncheon which provided a venue for fruitful discussions and exchanges of ideas and contacts. The purpose of the Mini-Colloquium was to bring together many of the diverse electron devices community in the Seattle and University of Washington environments and to re-launch the Seattle Chapter of the EDS. The support of this activity by the IEEE EDS and the Department of Electrical Engineering and the IEEE EDS Distinguished Lecturer Program are all gratefully acknowledged. The Mini-Colloquium was organized by Prof. R. Bruce Darling of the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington.

The Mini-Colloquium featured 3 IEEE EDS Distinguished Lecturers:

Prof. Paul K. L. Yu, Dept. of ECE, U. C. San Diego, La Jolla, CA
A Green Campus and Photovoltaic Research

Prof. Juin J. Liou, University of Central Florida, Orlando, FL
Recent Development on Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Protection of RF Integrated Circuits

Prof. Cary Y. Yang, Santa Clara University, Santa Clara, CA
